On Saturday night, Nov. 21, Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez overcame a stern test from four-division world champion Miguel Cotto over 12 rounds before capturing a unanimous decision inside of the Mandaly Bay Hotel & Casino.

Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KO’s) shined on HBO pay per view, as his poised attack, mixed with his power and sheer size and strength advantages, was a little too much for his 35-year old foe. Cotto (40-5, 33 KO’s) was competitively but was also unable to amount a sustained attack that would have helped turn the tide.

On Wednesday, Nov. 18, four-division world champion Miguel Cotto and former junior middleweight titlist Saul “Canelo” Alvarez held their final press conference ahead of their HBO pay per view showdown this weekend from the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.

The bout has been highly debated this far, with several pointing towards the craft and veteran prowess of the 35-year old Cotto to carry the day while others simply feel that Canelo’s youth, size, and power will be enough to give the 25-year old superstar from Jalisco, Mexico the edge.

Why do so many boxing fans respect Miguel Cotto? The answer is as simple and as direct as could be: because he always comes to fight.

Daniel Geale was a formidable challenge, anyone would agree, and Cotto knew that as well. But coming into their fight this past weekend in New York, Cotto was fighting for something that he had tasted before: a colossal event, a mega-fight.

Four-division world champion Miguel Cotto proved to be too much for Daniel Geale last night, stopping the brave Australian inside of the 4th round of their middleweight title fight last night from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Cotto (40-4, 33 KO’s) now looks to a possible fight later in the year with Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez, while Geale (31-4, 16 KO’s) will have to go back to the drawing board once again.

The more times passes, the more it seems like we may be seeing Floyd Mayweather face off with Miguel Cotto in a rematch on May 2 instead of a huge showdown with Manny Pacquiao that the boxing world and general public has been hoping for.

Cotto gave Mayweather a spirited battle in May of 2012, dropping a clear yet competitive decision over the course of 12 rounds inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

While at yesterday’s media brunch in Los Angeles advance of this weekend’s welterweight title clash between WBO champion Tim Bradley and Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum discussed the future options of Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto.

This past weekend in Orlando, Fl., Cotto returned to HBO’s airwaves with a scintillating stoppage over Delvin Rodriguez in the third round. Cotto was in rare form, as he ripped the Dominican’s body relentlessly while breaking him down with sharp, powerful blows.

After having two fights co-promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in 2012, Cotto returned to work with Top Rank, his original promoter dating back to his pro debut in 2001, for the Rodriguez match and it looks like a strong possibility that he will finish his career with the company.

Arum seemed extremely upbeat when discussing Cotto’s options, pointing towards a match with lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez in particular as a fight worth making. Arum also discussed the possibility of a showdown with former junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
